Smallmouth Bass


The Kenora part of lake of the woods is an awesome smallmouth bass fishery.  Anglers that target them can catch a lot of bass.  This area’s many bays, points and islands combined with all of the rocky bottoms will give anglers so many places to fish for smallmouth bass.  Good numbers of 2 to 3 pounders are common and big bass in the 4 to 5 pound range are possible.  The spring and early summer is the best time to fish for smallmouth bass.  If you time it right, big bass will be all over the shorelines.  If you know how to fish for smallmouth bass though, you will have no problem catching plenty of smallmouth bass from summer through fall.  In the summer and fall, anglers usually do a lot better fishing the reefs offshore.
